for less money. >> the president preaching to the choir yesterday. he was greeted by rick snyder at the airport in detroit. michigan would be the 24th right to work state in the nation and with its union background, it would be a huge blow to organized labor, which continues to lose its share of the work force. it was a little under 12% of the work force last year. it was 20% 30 years ago. snyder says his goal isn't hurting unions, it's helping michigan. >> i view this as solving an issue for michigan workers. you have hard working people in michigan. this is giving workers choice. >> republicans lost five seats in the michigan legislature last month and democrats accused them of fast tracking the right to work bill through the house and senate in a single day last week to get it done before the new legislature takes office next month. the democratic members of congress tried to pressure legislators not to approve the bill. they were scolded by the state house speaker for pressuring lansing instead of dealing with the fiscal cliff. >> gretchen: wendell goler, thanks very much. >> st

fees from nonunion employees. michigan' governor rick snyder says that workers should have the right to choose whether they join a union. earlier we spoke to u.a.w. worker and said that auto jobs in michigan disappeared because of the unions and he hopes the bill will change that. >> a lot of that is due to the labor cost that the the u.a.w. forced on the automakers so the automakers have re southern states or moved out of the midwest and we're hoping to get some of that manufacturing back into the midwest and into michigan specifically and right to work legislation will help do that. >> ainsley: the governor is expected to sign the bill into law and the union members will have the option of resigning from their union. obamacare tax hikes aren't going to just affect your medical bills, they might affect your pets, too. a new rule from the irs shows the medical devices used by veterinarians will be hit by obamacare's 2.3% device tax and that likely means higher vet costs because the manufacturers will be raising the prices and the tax used for people and pets. pet owners already
